    Default Comforter

    DD is 16 months old and when she was 6 months old I took her dummy as she continued to loose it through the night to the point where she wasnt getting any sleep and kept waking up looking for it, waiting for me to put it back in for her.. Since then she has slept through, 12 hours from 630pm - 630am.
    Recently she has attached herself to a comforter and in her case it has been a face washer. Now she wakes up 2-3 times a night looking for it.
    Is it normal for kids to have a comforter? Should I be taking the comforter off her? Now I feel like I am back to square one again with her sleeping prior to taking them dummy. Does anyone have any advice?

    Sorry I don't have much advice but my DS is 15 months and has a blanky and small flat teddy he sleeps with. We actually introduced these about 6 months ago due to him waking at night. Best thing we did to be honest. He still has a dummy (only to sleep) but I have 6 in his cot which means he just finds it himself and puts it back in if he needs it but usually only has it to fall asleep. I think it's quite normal for them to become attached to things in order to self soothe. Sorry your LO is waking and looking for it though. Hope things improve for you soon. x

    I'd give her some more face washers in her cot. My little boy has a comforter (frog from SOS site) he is super in love with and he has four of them in his cot.
